Chicago Schools - Loyola or DePaul?

Postby hoosierdaddy » Fri Feb 05, 2010 6:57 pm

I'm in at Loyola and DePaul in Chicago. Loyola is offering $10k per year and must maintain a 3.0 GPA - 90% of merit scholarships were retained in 2009. If you go below 3.0, you still keep half the scholarship. DePaul is offering $15k per year and you must maintain a 3.2 GPA and this amounts to top 35% of the class based on the curve. Scholarships are renewed annually, so at a minimum I am guaranteed $15k but if I go below, I lose it.

Right now I intend to work towards a Tax Certificate at either school and I would like to practice Estate Planning (of course this could change). These are definitely peer schools and in the same city. I feel like the scholarships are close enough in amount and likelihood of renewal to be a wash. Does anyone have any thoughts on why I should choose one or the other.

I'm in a similar situation. I just made this thread here. It might be relevant to your interests.


I'm in the same situation but only got offered 5K at Loyola.

Loyola is the slightly better school (DePaul was Tier 3 just a few years ago) and offers a better scholarship.
